Why Choose Thrive Pediatrics ?

We created Thrive Pediatrics to provide an environment where patients and staff thrive.

Thrive Pediatrics values simplicity, life balance, a growth mindset, cohesive teamwork, and gratitude.

In this busy, often complicated world, Thrive aims to simplify your child’s healthcare. By doing this we hope to promote balance in one’s life with easy access to healthcare information and clinical visits. Thrive also believes in a growth mindset and therefore commits to staying up-to-date in general pediatrics and will encourage this attitude among staff. We will respect our patients & their guardian’s efforts to stay informed.

Thrive also believes in a cohesive team. This team consists of our patients, their families, the Thrive team, and the community all collaborating effectively on behalf of children’s health. Ultimately, we at Thrive Pediatrics are grateful for the trust we feel from our patients and for the cooperation of the community to help Idaho’s children thrive.

Thrive provides evidence based care to our patients.

Experienced Physicians and Advanced Practice Providers

Our physicians and advanced practice providers (nurse practitioners) have practiced in the Treasure Valley for several years.  They have made efforts to create positive connections with pediatric specialty care and also with pediatric therapists.  It can be very difficult to navigate the healthcare world and our hope is our experience will help you obtain the care you seek.


We have two convenient locations in Meridian. Our first location, on the corner of Linder and McMillan, is close to several Meridian schools. Our second location, right off the Eagle Exit, is close to several OBGYN offices and St. Luke’s Meridian.

We have expanded to meet the growing needs of the community.  Ultimately, we want you to have access to your primary medical home team for both urgent and routine care.

On-site Lab Testing

Thrive will offer on-site lab testing to reduce the need to drive somewhere else for your testing.

Extended Hours

Thrive offers extended hours during the weekdays and on weekends. If you call after hours you will always reach a qualified healthcare professional to help you with your concerns by phone.

After Hours Access

We have several methods of contacting us outside of normal business hours.

Physician or Nurse Practitioner Call

After clinic hours, our phones turn over from our office to our answering service. If you have care-related questions that shouldn’t wait until the next business day, you can call our same phone number and reach someone. They will put you in contact with our on-call physician or Nurse Practitioner.

We do share call coverage for some weekends and holidays with two other local, independent pediatric offices and so from time to time, you may be helped by either Dr. Birch or Dr. Lindsay. These are wonderful physicians that we know and trust.

Athena Portal

At any time during the day or night, you can access our clinic’s online portal through Athena. You can message your provider, access your records and make requests for medication refills. Click HERE to log in.
